10 Most Shocking AEW Signings (So Far)
Could we see another major signing make their debut at All Out?
For a while there, it looked as if Taz was done with the wrestling business.
He left his position as an announcer for TNA/Impact in 2015 and, between then and showing up in AEW in October 2019, did little of note in wrestling (besides a guest spot as on an ECW-themed WWE Network special).
Post-Impact he settled into a gig hosting a nationally syndicated morning radio show, as well as his own podcast (which did discuss wrestling goings-on).
The Human Suplex Machine's AEW career began slow and steady, first by doing a guest spot of commentating on an episode of Dark, then showing up to call the action on the 2019 Full Gear pre-show.
He was drafted in as a replacement for Tony Schiavone on the January 1, 2020 episode of Dynamite and, two weeks later, signed a full-time contract with the company.
He has been a joy to watch and listen to since, whether cutting promos, seconding members of Team Taz during matches or joking about with Excalibur on commentary.
One of the more unlikely (but welcomed) wrestling comebacks of recent times.
